Polishing a turd versus letting it stink






I’d like to say that the mainstream media are haemorrhaging talent, but in fact they are finally being forced to stop the excesses due to the market no longer returning the funds that can support it.

You’ve seen the “senior” journalists, that file 2 or 3 stories a week on a salary cruise along oblivious of the day when media is expecting journalists to file 2 or 3 stories a day, and thinking their tenure and perspex and plastic awards would protect them from reality.

At the same time, the remaining journalists have turned on decent society and now represent criminals, bludgers and the downfall of popular governments.

It’s like a slow-motion train wreck, and I, for one, am enjoying it frame by frame.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
